elections. host: pennsylvania -- 20 electoral votes. in 2008, barack obama won by 10%. unemployment in the state is nearing what we have nationwide, 8.2%. terry madonna, neighboring ohio is getting a lot of attention with its 18 electoral votes -- was so different between ohio and pennsylvania that makes the buckeye state more of a battleground in pennsylvania, at least the moment? guest: the essential difference is that ohio has a good many more moderate independent voters at this point which are likely to vote either republican or democrat. as i pointed out a moment ago, the reason the democrats of done well as they have captured the suburbs of our state in these last presidential elections in recent years. that has been the defining difference -- you have the big swath of in the middle, of ohio in columbus that is the battleground area. obviously the cleveland area in the northeastern part of the state is democratic. the cincinnati part in the southwest is more republican. ohio has a larger pool of the swing voters, if you will, and more evenly balanced between the democratic and

a hurdle for president obama. the october unemployment report. as it turns out, last month was a strong one for job creation. the labor department said 171,000 jobs were added last month, the unemployment rate ticked to 7.9%, but remained under 8% which is key for the president. in a move that surprised exactly no one, both campaigns tried to spin the news this morning. governor romney said this in wisconsin. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2%. today we learned it's 7.9%, that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. >> speaking in ohio the president highlighted the spike in job creation. >> and today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> joining us now, from washington, the man with all the answers, cnbc's amman jabbers. what's your assessment of this jobs report? >> it's definitely a strong jobs report, stronger than expected consensus was about 125,000 jobs, we saw 171,000. that was a surprise to the upside. in the mo
're governor of ohio. michigan has had one of the biggest drops in unemployment. when obama took office, michigan was a messecause of the auto industry. they've had a huge drop of unemployment. even though they a little bit higher now than michigan. and i was struck that governor kasich suggested that everybody was for the auto rescue. no, they weren't. most republicans, with the exception by the way of president george w. bush who let it happen with actions he took, were against the auto rescue. so i don't understand, well i do understand, but people just don't want to take responsibility for where they stood on that issue. >> this was a question, carly about the auto bailout b. what role government direct government money would play in restructuring these companies. >> that's right. and who stands first in line to be repaid? is it the unions? or is it debtors and creditors? that was the fundamental question. and the truth is, it is disingenuous and factually inaccurate to say that republicans weren't for the rescue of the auto industry. the question was how. and what. and who would be

unemployment rate. it's a positive for the democrats and the obama administration, at least short term. we know that the election is about the economy. it is about, you know, two different visions in terms of an obama plan that basically suggests raising taxes on the wealthy, you know, to lower the deficit and romney plan that suggests tax reform that ultimately will produce higher growth. you know, i'm not so sure that either one of those have been detailed specifically so that voters understand, but, nonetheless, that's what tuesday is all about. >> earlier this week, bill, you spoke to cnbc and you sounded a litt little, let's say, jaded about the election. let's listen to what you said and then we'll talk about it on the other side. >> we spent $5 billion on this election for what? to prove that it's a government of the superpac by the superpac for the superpac to prove that basically who wins at this point we'll be at four years in the future. but let's look to something different as opposed to this red and blue state theology that is basically the same. >> does the matter which candidates

docks. and you say? >> i say unemployment right now is higher than when president obama took office in 2009. and that's not good enough to be of any significant, in my opinion, any significant help to gov. romney. and that is 23 million people without work, who are working without, you know, a full-time job who want them or have given up work being all together. >> so you, lou dobbs, take the exact opposite stance that cbs news radio takes? exactly the opposite? >> imagine that. >> but look, come on now, cbs radio goes out to thousands of radio stations, people like me list to it in their car or when you get up, this and that. you respect -- are a respected economic reporter. you say i don't think it's logical. >> you know they have to spin it the president's way. >> what it portrays a lack of understanding what is happening here and the numbers tell the story. this is a workforce in this country of over 135 million people. we see a net change within that of 171,000 people in one month. it takes about 150,000 of them to just keep up with population growth and suddenly there's econom

president obama says seguess tration -- i'm not saying that the unemployment is because of the baby boomers. i have checked it several times. there is a little effect. but mainly the reason the unemployment rate continues to be at 7.9% and underemployment higher than that is because people that want to find jobs cannot find jobs. >> greg: obama thought he could stem the rising tide of the economy. he was interested in the emore face crud called social change. you can't indulge in liberal fantasies without a robust economy. that is the t irony for socialist folly. to expand socialist folly, you need capitalism first to prosper so you can have the worthless crap that you indulge -- >> eric: run out of other people's money. >> greg: to fail you have to be successful first. the last thing we should do with foltering economy and can't pay for it. >> andrea: that is the first thing he did. he had good will and capital. he won decisively. that is where he went. this is baffling to me. i get why he would go after the youth vote. most politicians try and speak to you, they hope you were born yesterd
